Just rec'd my "temp"CHP...it's been more than 45 days since application. Where do I find specific laws about notifying LEO if I get pulled over (for speeding, perhaps). Also, do you know where I can find specificity on carrying while driving if I have a CHP? Can I conceal within the car? Any all info is appreciated...
I have a question? I am a Virginia Resident and I have a Concealed carry permit am I aloud to drive on to a VA state prison to drop someone off so they can go see a inmate.The prison is 3 and ahalf hours away and i was wanting to know if i can bring my gun.but i won't be getting out of the car
Deadly Force / Castle Doctrine:
Virginia is not a Castle Doctrine state and has no stand-your-ground law.
Virginia has no duty to retreat requirement provided the victim is not part of the problem (did not initiate or escalate the encounter). We are also a "stand your ground" state, also known as a true man state and this doesn't matter if you are in your home, on your curtilage, our out and about in public as long as you have a legal right to be where you are.
